City of Nacogdoches Utility Maintenance crews received notification of a possible sanitary sewer overflow in the area South of Ridgewood Dr and West of Press Rd. After searching the area crews found a section of 8 inch concrete sewer pipe had collapsed resulting in sewer being discharged to a tributary approximately 1.5 miles from Lanana Creek. Estimates of the discharge are in excess of 100,000 gallons. Texas Commission Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has been notified and all required notifications have been issued to City of Nacogdoches officials. The environmental threat is minimal as the overflow was mostly contained in the typically dry stream bed. After making repairs to the broken line City crews treated the area along the creek to limit the impact. The pipe had been exposed by rains and no longer had soil around it for support causing the collapse.
